Author: Environment Agency Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
In February 1998 the Environment Agency and its partner, Sport England, launched a 'Water Related Recreation Strategy for the Southern Region', covering Kent, Sussex, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. This document provided a complete picture of recreation in the Region on and around inland and coastal waters. The strategy set out a number of principles and recommendations for increasing provision of both formal and informal recreation and for improving the way we and other bodies in the region manage that provision. The challenge for the Agency and other organisations is to promote a level of recreational activity, which can be sustained by the natural environment. This Action Plan document was developed as the first stage in implementing the recommendations of the Water Related Recreation Strategy and is based on consultation within the Agency's Southern Region and with many external organisations involved in recreation provision and management.
